High school history teacher Joe Wisniewski may be in a rut, but he dug it himself and he's not planning on getting out anytime soon. The last thing he wants is to mentor a starry-eyed newcomer, so when he gets an unexpected assignment-Emily Sullivan, a student teacher with a steamroller smile and dynamite legs-he digs in deeper and ducks for cover. Emily has looked up to the legendary "Wiz" for a long time. In her opinion, the man is coasting these days, and she's sure a little change in his routine is exactly what he needs. Besides this assignment is her chance to prove to her family- and herself- that she can stick to one project. The question is : Will Emily get Joe fired up or just plain fired?
